The West Virginia University (WVU) Medicine Heart Failure clinic in Morgantown, West Virginia expanded a pharmacist-led telemedicine heart failure medication optimization program internally and in select primary care clinics in the West Virginia Practice-Based Research Network (WVPBRN).  

  • The project aimed to reduce barriers to specialty care access; improve the percent of heart failure patients receiving appropriate medications; and improve heart failure symptoms, quality of life, cardiac function, and mortality.¬†
  • One hundred seventy-two blood pressure cuffs and 100 scales were provided to patients in rural Appalachian areas who went on to participate in 144 tele-pharmacy encounters.¬†¬†
